Jean Berger, peintre et complice?

François-Marc Gagnon

Jean Berger is the most documented painter of New France and yet none of his works exist to-day.Jean Berger, peintre et complice? by Professor François-Marc Gagnon presents all the written documentation relating to this figure, especially the transcripts of the long trial wherein he was accused of publicly assaulting the apothecary Claude Sainte-Olive. Each document written in the French language of the time is presented with accompanying notes. A striking image of Montreal during this period (1700-1710) emerges from these sources.
